The Girona Art Museum welcomes you to an "In Terms Of Women” itinerary. A guided tour of the museum's permanent collection, from a gender perspective, which aims to highlight and disseminate the role of women over time and how art has been a reflection of this. Along this way, we will review the presence of women in the works of the permanent exhibition. The guide has been developed from studies and reviews by three research specialists on women in different fields and especially in different periods of art and history.
The itinerary begins in the Romanesque and Gothic rooms. The comments you will hear in these sections are based on the research of Teresa Vinyoles, a medievalist historian, lecturer at the University of Barcelona, co-founder of the Duoda Women's Research Centre and scientific director of the Women's Biographical Dictionary.
The second section of the itinerary covers the Renaissance and the Baroque. Our guide for these periods has been Sílvia Canalda, an art historian specializing in the study of the religious image in modern times and a lecturer at the University of Barcelona.
The third section of the itinerary, in which we jump to the 19th century and reach the first years of the 20th century, is based on the comments of Elina Norandi, an art historian specialising in gender perspective and a teacher at the Barcelona Llotja College for Art and Design. The Girona Art Museum has hosted several exhibitions curated by Elina Norandi.
